Fresh off her Billboard Magazine cover, Fia Nyxx (pronounced like phoenix) is making 2018 her solo breakout year. Having started her career in the entertainment world as a backup dancer, Fia was then picked up to be part of SHE, a pop girl group who toured internationally for a couple of years. Eventually the group disbanded and Fia found herself at Muscle Shoals FAME Studios in Alabama recording what is now her debut solo EP Everything Girl.
The record, which was mixed by Brian Malouf (Michael Jackson, Queen, Madonna) and produced by Lance Bendiksen (Sarah McLachlan, The Fray) and Matt Tryba (One Republic, The Fray), also features Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section “The Swampers.” The seven-track record was influenced by “the indulgent and passionate culture of the South” and adds a Motown flair to modern pop sounds.
Nyxx, who recently performed at Denver’s Clocktower Cabaret to release the album, also has a premiere show scheduled this Thursday, March 29th at The Mint in Los Angeles. Nyxx’s live show proves she enjoys the art of performance- it features male backup dancers, sultry breakdowns, frequent crowd engagement, a seven-piece band, multiple costume changes, and in this case, the release of her debut music video “Maybe Just Love Me.”
Said Fia about her new release at the Clocktower this week, “I had to burn to the ground in order to be rebirthed and I’m so proud of that now. This record is everything I’ve worked on for years. Reborn. Welcome to the empire.”
